      Alain M Despite Wesley Snipes' involvement, '7 Seconds' struggles to find its footing in the action/drama genre. The film falls short in delivering a compelling narrative, failing to capitalize on Snipes' talent. Despite attempts at tension and drama, the execution lacks the necessary depth and engagement, leaving audiences disconnected from the storyline. While Snipes brings his signature charisma, even his presence isn't enough to salvage this lackluster drama. Unfortunately, '7 Seconds' misses the mark in delivering a captivating experience. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/08/24 Full Review Audience Member Täytyy olla täydellinen morooni, että pysty katsomaan tällaista paskaa edes pikakelauksella. Kuten siis juuri tein. On tainnu olla Romaniassa takaa-ajokohtauksia tekevällä firmalla "kaksi yhden hinnalla"-tyyppinen kamppis menossa. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Car chases are well planned and executed giving a thrilling ride for outstanding entertainment. Wesley and Tamzin are fun together making for an enjoyable characterization. Script and story are finely written making for a mystery that is enjoyable and intriguing. Filming lacks the edge of a bond film, yet has sufficient action to keep one amused. Nibbles: Bread and butter pudding. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review dave j Wednesday, September 25, 2013 (2005) 7 Seconds ACTION Enjoyable straight-to-rental movie which I thought is much more entertaining than some of Wesley Snipes big budgeted movies such as "Boiling Point" and "Murder in 1600" even "Passenger 57". The set up regards a carefully pre-planned heist of several armoured trucks in Romania carrying 20 million altogether headed by Snipes as Jack Tuliver. After sabotaging several trucks, they would use a "7 second" (hence the title) beeper to destroy the doors except that they were all duds resorting them to retreat and then go to plan B. The heist group then succeeded into getting the money on this second attempt but with some inside help except that they were all intercepted and double crossed for this particular group seemed to know exactly which route they were going to take. All of Tuliver's group get shot and killed leaving with one escaping and another person kidnapped who happened to be Tuliver's girlfriend Suzi. A female lieutenant by the name of Kelly Anders (Tamzin Outhwaite) gets in the middle of it but soon feels that the police officer who was shot and killed during the standoff didn't have anything to do with Tuliver and his heist group since after Tuliver kidnapped her, he would then let her go. The rest of the movie then dwells on Tulliver searching for answers by using some relevant flashbacks or the criminal organisation looking for Tulliver since he unknowingly ran away with the most valuable thing the organisation was really looking for which was the thing that was in the briefcase. All I can say is that for an 'action' film, it's not bad since it has some neat looking gun battles, awesome looking fights with Snipes using his Kenpo style against his foes using knives and guns and some car chases without CGI. I mean, viewers know that in real life things like this would've been over quickly but because it's the movies I sometimes like to see something that requires the protagonist to do more than just talk. Much of the movies that garner the most attention and the most receive are normally realistic films such as "Reversal Of Fortune" or "Zodiac" and they're many to chose from but not enough 90's style "action" films and I must say this would have to be another one of those 'guilty pleasure' action movies. 3 out of 4 stars Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member So boring, bland, embarrassingly awful, under-whelming and badly acted was '7 seconds', that I happily dozed off halfway through with not one whit of guilt (I usually like to see a film through to the bitter end before pronouncing such a damning indictment). The only cast member with any acting ability was Wesley Snipes and even he appeared lackluster and weary in this miserably concocted heist 'thriller' (I use the word in the loosest sense of the meaning). Set in Romania, no visual attention was paid to any of its natural and cultural assets, history, art or scenic beauty; we were only 'treated' to scenes of the inner city of some drab, faceless, 'Eastern European' country filled with dull, clichéd characters lacking any iota of personality. The one-dimensional plot dragged along like a month of wet Sundays as one set of gangsters chased another set of gangsters who had (yawn) accidentally stolen an expensive painting from an armoured 'brinks' vehicle - that's about all I remember (or care to remember) of it and it would be a waste of your and my time in saying much more about this ill-conceived plot. The few attempts at humour were wincingly painful, the visuals dull and colourless, and the acting cringe-making. I do hope the script writer and director (Simon Fellows) are now in hiding and have made a written promise (in their own blood) never to subject the public to another of their ill-fated attempts at film making - and I do hope Wesley Snipes has recovered from the ignominy of appearing in such a bunch of drivel. Unless you're an insomniac looking for a cure for your sleeplessness, DON'T watch this movie! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Unfortunately 7 Seconds was like so many other films. Just because you have a good idea on a plot doesn't mean you'll get a good movie if there is poor execution. Outside of Wesley Snipes, the rest of the cast was absolutely horrible. The acting was so bad that the few scenes in the film that were meant to deliver emotion fell flat on their faces. Even worse than the acting was the pathetic action sequences. The car chases were a joke and the gun fights and fist fights were even more ridiculous. Seeing random things blowing up in an unrealistic way doesn't do anyone any good. The only reason this movie is even watchable is because Snipes is still great and the story was mildly interesting. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
